I've been given an opportunity to participate in an exhibit at a large local quilt show. Everyone that is participating in the exhibit has the same design for their top. The exhibit is to demonstrate how the quilting of a top changes the look of the quilt.
The project was given to me in a rather round about way. The person that first received the top decided she didn't want to participate, so she gave it to me.
I'm a part-timer, a nobody in the quilting world, but I want to knock their socks off with my quilting.
This is the top that I was given.
These are some of the ideas that I'm playing around with. But, I'm not 100% sold on any of them. I just can't decide, and I don't have lots of time to hem-and-haw. This top has to be done and returned to the show people by December 1. I have several customer quilts that I have to finish before I can work on this. I'm on Thanksgiving break right now and will have to finish it before I return to work on November 30th..
I look at it and think, pearls in the spines of the feathers? no pearls? simple feathers? innovative feathers? give it all up and do an edge-to-edge design?
I know that part of my problem is that I'm placing so much importance on the project, but I really do want to wow them.
